4.0 out of 5 stars Getting better all the time, 24 Mar. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death Masks: The Dresden Files, Book Five (Paperback)
The Harry Dresden series is an undiscovered gem at the moment. The books were until recently only available in the US, and it took a while for the public to catch on to this cool, smart PI/practising wizard who risks fates much, much worse than death to save us poor oblivious mortals.
With the Dresden Files about to become a TV show, now is your chance to catch up with the first few books in the series. Each one is darker and more complex, and in Death Masks we see Harry (a non-believer) forced to help the Church recover the stolen Shroud of Turin, meeting new monsters and new friends along the way.

I wouldn't call Harry a non-believer. He and The Man Upstairs may not see eye-to-eye, but Harry's certainly aware of Him and His power. How could he not be, having fought alongside Michael Carpenter?

More accurately, Harry feels like he's committing a taboo by involving himself in the affairs of a faith which, by and large, would like to pretend he didn't exist, or do something to remedy his existence. He doesn't like the idea that he might be seen as rubbing God's nose in it. "Hey, here I am! A spellcaster, doing Your job for you!"
